It was also attended by Assistant Ministers Nikola Mendrila and Perica Solic.
Despite the strict guidelines for the state budget, we will take care of specific tasks performed by harbour masters, because the safety at sea and rivers must be conducted constantly, said Deputy Antesic.
At 8 harbour master's offices, and 70 harbour's branch offices at sea, a total of 267 of employees were employed, along with 77 employees who are employed seasonally. It is therefore necessary to fill vacancies in harbour branch offices’ personnel created due to departure of employees in retirement.

In the next period we will perform the analysis of the urgent needs for employment, and will be able to propose a plan for filling the vacancies accordingly.
